Cathepsin B (CTSB) also known as APP secretase (APPS) and CPSB, is an enzymatic protein belonging to the peptidase C1 family. Cathepsin B / CTSB is synthesized as a preproenzyme. Following removal of the signal peptide, the inactive proenzyme undergoes further modifications including removal of the pro region to result in the active enzyme. The catalytic activity of Cathepsin B / APPS contains: Hydrolysis of proteins with broad specificity for peptide bonds; Preferentially cleaves -Arg-Arg-|-Xaa bonds in small molecule substrates (thus differing from cathepsin L); In addition to being an endopeptidase, shows peptidyl-dipeptidase activity, liberating C-terminal dipeptides. As a thiol protease, cathepsin B / CPSB is believed to participate in intracellular degradation and turnover of proteins and has also been implicated in tumor invasion and metastasis. Overexpression of cathepsin B has been associated with esophageal adenocarcinoma and other tumors.

Recombinant Human Cathepsin B, His Tag (CTB-H5222) is expressed from human 293 cells (HEK293). It contains AA Arg 18 - Ile 339 (Accession # P07858-1 (L26V)).
Predicted N-terminus: Arg 18 & Leu 80

Molecular Characterization
This protein carries a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.
The Human Cathepsin B will be further processed into mature form (Leu 80-Ile 339). The protein has a calculated MW of 36.7 kDa (pro-form) and 29.5 kDa (mature-form). The protein migrates as 42-50 kDa and 34 kDa under reducing (R) condition (SDS-PAGE) due to glycosylation.

Less than 1.0 EU per μg by the LAL method.

>95% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
>90% as determined by SEC-MALS.

Lyophilized from 0.22 μm filtered solution in 50 mM Tris, 150 mM NaCl, pH8.0 with trehalose as protectant.

See Certificate of Analysis for details of reconstitution instruction and specific concentration.
